And coming up at 10.45pm, a round-up of this week's


best stories from across the globe in Reporters.


So welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be


the Political Editor of the Sunday Express,


and Anne Ashworth, Assistant Editor at the Times.


The Sunday Telegraph has an interview with


the new independent reviewer of terrorism legislation,


Max Hill who warns that the threat of terror attacks is at its highest


Not so many newspapers are in just yet. These are the ones we have.


Changes to visa regulations for migrants is the lead


The paper says plans include limiting access to benefits


The Sunday Express has more details about the man


who murdered the children's author Helen Bailey.


Let us begin with the Sunday Telegraph, interesting story about


the Lords, really, and the "Brexit" Bill, saying the peers are uniting


to soft "Brexit", to soften "Brexit", Theresa May may not like


this. McIlroy she was hanging over their shoulders, imploring them to


do the right thing, and available of the people. Unlike in the House of


Commons, where there were not any amendments put forward to the bill,


and it passed through the House of Commons, now there will be


opportunities for peers to put down amendments and in fact they have,


many of them, but the ones gaining the most support include one which


promises to guarantee rights of EU citizens already living here, and


also one which would give everyone in Parliament an opportunity to sort


of vote on the final deal when it is done. And it's interesting because


if you think about the composition of the House of Lords, they don't


have the same issue of patronage that they do in the House of


Commons, in that sense they are a lot more free to vote with their


conscience. Indeed, many of them are now telling the Sunday Telegraph


that they are going to put forward these amendments and vote for them,


and that they are saying, basically, they feel this is such a big issue,


that the timetable is too short for them to look at the issue and they


want to be given the opportunity to make amendments and do the job they


are there for. Some people have said, the British people voted on


this, the House of Commons pushed this bill through without amendment,


without change, how can it be that the unelected Lords should amend it?


This is why there is going to be so much fuss about the intervention of


the Lords into this. I think we are going to have a very exciting


political battle. These people have little to lose, they can be the


awkward squad, in this age of protest, that is the role that they


can fulfil. I think there are a great many people who would have


supported Brexit, but not necessarily hard Brexit, and those


people want to see it done on terms. How we do this, how we except the EU


will determine our political and economic life and it needs to be


done carefully. Some of the issues that maybe we should have a second


look at the final deal, before we sign, or whatever it is, to exit, is


maybe they think that even some people who voted for Brexit will


support. Gina Miller, businesswoman who brought the legal case that I


was following at the Supreme Court, that ended with all of this being


debated in parliament, she has said the Lords need to show some backbone


on the "Brexit" Bill. In a sense you would expect this, she led the


battle, as it were, through the courts, to make sure Parliament got


a say on whether or not we trigger Article 50. That is now what the


bill is going to be. Going through the Lords. In this piece to the


Independent, she is imploring the Lords to do what she considers is


their role, they are there as a revising chamber, as a scrutinising


chamber, she is saying, basically the Prime Minister is being a bully,


she is using the idea that she turned up, it is unusual for a Prime


Minister to turn up at the House of Lords under those circumstances, you


need to show your muscle now, if you are not happy with aspects of the


bill, vote for the amendments. She is a bit survey heroine, Julia


Miller, on investment charges, she did some good work into that, and


there is the for her but this will be a massive battle, this is going


to keep us going throughout March, April May, and beyond. Gina Miller,


in the independent front page, you admire her, as the woman who brought


this case, she came in for a lot of stick from certain quarters? She has


had a lot of stick, a lot of people will say into response what she did,


the public had their say, they were very clear, they voted for "Brexit"


and the idea that it has to be brought back before Parliament is


kind of unnecessary, because it is almost a hurdle that is not


warranted, given that people had their direct say. Yes, she is


clearly standing up for principles she thinks are very important, she


thinks that this is something that she must do, and the fact she went


to such lengths to do it, whether you are on either side of the


"Brexit" fans, you have got to admire her for doing it, it has not


been an easy thing to do, I am sure that she has suffered. She has faced


down the most extraordinary social media torrent... Death threats, in


fact. She cannot go safely to a public place, she has been told,


that shows the depth of emotion. Nigel Farage, on the opposite side


of the fence, he says the same thing, he says he is vilified in the


same way she has been. Cannot go out of the house for fear of the liberal


press, that is the phrase! Still on the "Brexit" story, Tim Shipman,


political editor, here, talking about there is going to be a Visa


revolution for foreign workers, that is his angle on at. Yes, migration


is never far away from agenda when we talk about "Brexit", lots of


people say that was the main people Racing people were rejecting when


they voted for "Brexit", that they wanted to have control on who comes


into the country. Of course this week we saw David Davis admitting


that it was going to take some time for us to bring down the level of


migration that we already have. This is suggesting that it will be sector


by sector arrangements for migration which is something we have heard


before. But there will also be new arrangements in terms of benefits


and restricting benefits for new arrivals. This was also something


David Cameron had started prior to the referendum. The most interesting


bit of this article is actually about what we do with the people


that are already here, the people that have come here from Europe,


living here, settled here, working, and what it is suggesting is that


actually, there will be a cut-off date, and many people thought it


might have been June 23, it seems that the lawyers have suggested this


is not lawful, and actually, the date that we trigger Article 50,


which Tim Shipman seems to think will be March 15, that is on the


cards. Not far away. That will be the day, after that point, people


who come in will not have their rights guaranteed. It is very


interesting, how the rights of migrants and who can stay and who


cannot, and who can stay in the future, is going up the agenda, the


trade deals have suddenly been shoved into the background, and


there is a kind of consternation as to wondering how we will do with all


these workers... How will we get on without them? A few of the other


stories? The Sunday Times have the Labour Party and the fallout from


the Labour Party by-elections, the deputy leader, Tom Watson, saying


that they risk their wipe-out in England as they had in Scotland and


is they take a long hard look at the way that they have alienated


traditional supporters of the party. What will they actually do about it,


and awful lot of public hand-wringing on the part of the


Labour Party members but they do not seem to be able to get rid of Jeremy


Corbyn. I would love to know what Tom Watson has privately told Jeremy


Corbyn about, time for you to go, or has he? The Labour moderates, when


you speak with them, you ask if there is a plan, and they look at


you like mournfully and say, there simply is not a plan. From Labour to


Ukip, and we have the express, who say that, the Sunday Express, they


say Nigel and I, Nigel Farage and Arron Banks, are fed up with


Ukip...? This is one of my stories... Yes, yes it is! I hadn't


spotted that! What a brilliant story! Sunday Express! Had a chat


with errant banks, in the wake of the Stoke by-election, -- Arron


Banks, Paul Nuttall, leader of the party, unsuccessful in his attempts


to be elected as the party's second MP, he says he will quit and take


his minions and not be part of Ukip unless they let him become chairman


of the party so that they can professionalise and modernise the


party and move forward with it. He has a bit of a beef with Douglas


Carswell, as we have known for a long time, and this issue that aired


on question Time about whether or not Douglas Carswell indeed blocks


Nigel Farage's knighthood, has reared its ugly head again, and


Arron Banks told me that if he becomes chairman, then his first act


will be to expel Douglas Carswell. It's all bitter infighting again.


Certainly is. Sunday Telegraph, they have written's new terror chief...


Max Hill, talking about Islamic State and the threat of terror being


the worst for a generation, his first interview since being


appointed. The independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, the man


who looks essentially to see whether the people who are keeping us safe


will be able to do this, and he is talking about a level of terror


threat akin to that in the 1970s, 1974, at the height of the IRA


bombing. Maybe this is maybe not a surprise to some people but it is a


rather sobering report on just the level of threat from Isis, and also,


the age at which people are becoming radicalised, the age of 14, people


are watching Isil videos and signing up, trying to leave Britain... To


join up... Terrorism has been on the agenda, the story about the man who


came back from Guantanamo Bay, living here for ten years, and then


escaped to Syria and was blown up in a suicide bomb attack in Iraq. The


thing I would like to know from him, because it crossed my mind, what is


going to do in terms of the surveillance powers of these people


slipping in and out of the country. Very quick, last look at the


Telegraph, Emma Stone, picture of her, just ahead of the Oscars, hot


favourite to be best actress. La La Land. You saw it and did not like


it? I am that person who did not like it, Hollywood did because it is


a love song to Hollywood, to how beautiful California is...


Everything that Hollywood stands for. So one would imagine that it


would do incredibly well, but it would not get my vote, maybe I am


just not enough of a romantic. Caroline, great filmgoer? I wish I


could be but having three children, this is my idea of a great night


out! LAUGHTER The papers, better than the movies,


perhaps we can get an Oscar! LAUGHTER


We will be back at 11:30pm, for another look at the stories making


the news. Coming up next on the BBC news channel, it is Reporters.
